Audible Magic's fingerprinting technology allows for the identification of copyrighted works and it has more than 11m master recordings on its database.
SoundCloud founder and CEO Alexander Ljung says, "We chose Audible Magic because the company offers one of the most trusted solutions for music copyright identification on the market today. We're committed to giving our users the best possible platform for their sounds on the web and that includes reassuring them that anything they create and share will remain protected and in their control."
SoundCloud launched in 2008 and now has over 2m users. At the end of last year, it made its iPhone app free and added a record function within it. Shortly afterwards, it launched its Android app.
